Difficult to get set up

Abi, pcRUSH.com
25 May 2008
  • Summary: Comments about HP LaserJet 2840: This printer was extremely difficult to install. It took almost an hour to get working and be viable on the network here and this was after a lot of fiddling around. It seems that HP use their own installation setup and not a normal Windows setup routine. After we finally got it running we were very disappointed to discover that the printer is very loud and makes weird noises even of its own accord.
  • Pros: Durable Construction, Fast Operation
  • Cons: Hard Setup, Noisy

Avoid it

Accidental IT Guy, pcRUSH.com
7 May 2008
  • Summary: Comments about HP LaserJet 2840: The management software is a huge resource hog and the device is very slow and unreliable. The print cartridges have a habit of wanting to be changed every few days - wiggling them around makes them work again. The drum wore out after only 2 months of moderate use (about 7,000 pages). There are MUCH better machines out there for the money.
  • Pros: Durable Construction
  • Cons: Hard To Use, Slow Operation, Unreliable

Der Riesendrucker, aber nur A4

ninobay, eBay.de
3 September 2010
  • Summary: Auf einer riesigen Palette kam der Drucker an. Ich wollte schon den Gabelstapler bestellen. Nur A4. hätte ich nicht gedacht. Ich nutze den Drucker jetzt bereits seit 5 Jahren. Die übliche HP-Betrügerei: Der Drucker sagt: "Ich drucke jetzt nicht mehr!!!" Aber nicht, weil meine Patrone leer ist. Nein. Sondern weil die Seitenanzahl erreicht ist.

Mac-User mit OS X 10.5 "Leopard" - Hände weg von HP-Geräten

S. Schulze "stefanhome", Amazon
23 February 2008
  • Summary: ACHTUNG Mac-User mit Leopard!!! Dieser Multifunktions-Drucker kann mit Mac OS X 10.5 NUR drucken. Alle anderen Funktionen wie Scanner laufen nicht. Der HP-Support nutzt auch nichts! Dort gibt es keine Hilfe! Kein Termin für einen Treiber - kein Update - NICHTS!!! Drucken funktioniert zwar gut, aber deswegen kauft man sich ja kein Multifunktions-Gerät! Für Windows Vista gibt's natürlich aktuelle Treiber!
